I'm looking for vets who were with 419TC or 2nd ACR in Iraq & Kuwait. I'm curious about GWS & PTSD symptoms. I have some of both: fatigue, mood-swings, muscle aches, digestive probs, lung problems, etc. I also have pursued many high-risk sports and jobs since the Gulf. Have others? I dislike crowds, public places, jump when I hear a loud bang (firecracker, backfire), suffer anxiety attacks, don't remember my dreams (haven't since Ur), memory loss, etc. A few guys from my unit have overdosed on heroine, some committed suicide, others have become alcoholics, and others have major social maladjustment problems. I would appreciate a response from any vet who was in Iraq or Kuwait.
